Manning completed 26 of 45 passes for 256 yards, three touchdowns and one interception for the 2-0 Broncos. Manning is 14-1 lifetime against the Chiefs.The Chiefs are 1-1. Charles led the Chiefs with 125 rushing yards on 21 carries, one TD. Charles had two fumbles as the Chiefs committed five costly turnovers.  The Broncos’ next game is another tough road test against the Detroit Lions, Sunday night, September 27th.
